Table 5 AHA/ASA guidelines for management of patients with ICH

From: Seizure prophylaxis in the neuroscience intensive care unit

As per the AHA/ASA guidelines for management of ICH [72]
• Prophylactic use of AED is not recommended in patients with ICH [72].
• Clinical seizures should be treated with anti-epileptic drugs [72].
• Continuous EEG monitoring is probably indicated in ICH patients with depressed mental status out of proportion to the degree of brain injury [72].
• Patients with a change in mental status who are found to have electrographic seizures on EEG should be treated with anti-epileptic drugs [72].
